Reconsider travelling to countries affected by COVID-19

The rapid spread of COVID-19 has led to countries imposing restrictions on flights from affected countries.

Brunei Darussalam has followed suit by suspending flights.

Every day, we hear of news reports of new COVID-19 cases in different countries including those in the region.

Without a doubt, the virus is highly contagious and poses a health risk, especially to those with underlying health problems. It is heartening to hear that the government is taking measures by postponing or cancelling non-essential overseas work trips as a safety measure.

To further safeguard the nation from the pandemic, the public should also reconsider travelling to affected countries unless it is really essential.
